For Parkinson's Disease: “When I take Carbidopa/Levodopa, one of the side effects is a strong chemical odor in my nose, and a chemical or bile taste in the mouth. It might not sound like much, but over time, this odor is punishing and demoralizing. Artane/trihexiphenidyl has greatly helped in reducing the odor issue with the Carbidopa and Levodopa. For now, it has helped improve my quality of life.”
For Parkinson's Disease: “This is a low level medication. It was the first I received prior to moving upward to the Sinemet Family. It only controlled slight tremor of my hand.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “Relieved neck spasms and akathisia from antipsychotics”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “I've started Artane to counteract the extrapyramidal effects of ziprazadone (generic Geodon). It works to relieve the muscle tremors and spasms.”
For Parkinson's Disease: “This drug made me stupid and depressed. Side effects included oral-facial dyskinesis, visual impairment, and weight gain.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “Relieved muscle spasms caused by risperidone.”
For Extrapyramidal Reaction: “i have athetoid spastic cp and when i was on it, it worked for a few years but it stopped working.”
For Parkinson's Disease: “Didn't help symptoms at all. Side Effects: 1. Really blurry vision 2. Felt dead inside.”
